FRANC3D has had a long development history starting in the late 1980's at Cornell University. The FRANC3D/Classic software is still available from the Cornell Fracture Group, but it is no longer supported and will not run on many current platforms as it is restricted to 32bit and XWindows graphics. An all new version of FRANC3D was started in 2005 and commercial licensed copies have been shipping since 2010. The development history is shown here: franc3d_history
